Lifetime breaks out the creepy with Boy in the Attic (formally known as Secrets in the Attic), the story about a boy who secretly lives in a family’s attic, and of course the daughter falls in love with him because drama. Unlike other movies about a weirdo secretly living inside a house, this one might not be a serial killer. Maybe. He’s framed, or so he says! But is he???
The script is by Christine Conradt (from a story by Ken Sanders), which is great because she is the Queen of Lifetime Original Movies, so you know it is going to be full of ridiculous Lifetime tropes and twists!
A teen girl and her mom inherit an old house… but little do they know that a mysterious person is hiding in the attic — a teen boy who has been living there for months. When the girl finally meets the boy, she falls in love with him and agrees to keep his hiding place a secret from everyone, including her mother. But when she finds out that he has been falsely accused of murder, she must decide if she will risk everything to protect him.
Boy in the Attic is directed by Paul Shapiro (Spring Break Shark Attack) and stars Abbie Cobb (The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story), Gina Holden (I Didn’t Kill My Sister), Iain Belcher (Preggoland), and Max Lloyd-Jones (The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story). Yes, that’s right, two actors from The Unauthorized Beverly Hills, 90210 Story reunite and now we can warp reality and make this film into 90210 fanfic! Huzzah!
Boy in the Attic premieres Saturday, August 20th on Lifetime!
